How to handle Jetlag during Flights

Updated on March 14, 2011

Finding a good seat is important If your good looking you can get a better seat by chancing your luck and flirting with the counter staff at the check-in desk.

 Avoid noisy passengers and children, unless your the paternal type- nothing wrong with that. Upgrade if possible to business class or first class. Make sure you have enough quality food to before flying and are well hydrated.  Make sure your always fully hydrated with water. Flying with the air-conditioning and so on tends to dry out the body. Make sure you have had enough sleep before flying. If possible try and fly at normal hours.  For instance not late at night. Additionally i know take a suppository to rid myself of as much solid matter as I can there there is little chance of constipation with all that sitting you have to do. Avoid alcohol or medication. I know a doctor no names revealed that takes a sleeping tablet always on a long time.  You may not sleep for the wholes flight but if you get three or so solid hours then that will set you in good stead.  At one time about 18 years ago I had a Qantas Air hostess as a girlfriend. She swore about the value of Melatonin tablets. Take a sleeping pill with you-can help and has helped me in the past; Take this around your usual bedtime. drink water often. move around the cabin as often as possible. Take good quality ear plugs and an eye mask so you can avoid both noise & light. Ask the Air Hostess not to disturb you unless you want them to. That is it in a nutshell. Happy Flying...
